There have been plenty of surprises on The Oprah Show over years, and one of Oprah's favorites is when she surprised her entire audience with a trip to Philadelphia in 1994. The entire audience flew to the City of Brotherly Love to see the sights while consuming as many cheese steaks as possible.
Leading up to her final season premiere, Oprah says she spent a lot of time racking her brains, thinking of a way to top all those cheesesteaks. "[I thought], ''Would it be another trip to Philly? Or maybe New York or L.A.?,'" she says. "And then I thought: 'Gee, maybe I ought to think bigger. Because, after all, this really is my 25th season, and this is really my last chance to do something big.'"
